“Oh dada!! Ektu shorun.”
Every morning in the city of joy, Kolkata, sets all its dwellers on a frenzy ride, including the sweaty and angry aunties huffing over their shoulders. With all its exquisite charm and mouth watering food, Kolkata does its best to spoil you.
Besides making the remaining fish population skip a beat, Kolkata pampers her children every day and never does she spare a single tourist. From lazy afternoons to those crazy Durga puja nights, it appeases your cultural cravings and hosts a daily carnival for the ones with a sweet tooth. I have gathered a few reasons why this city can claim to be the happiest of them all.
1: Because during Durga Puja the city transforms into an open buffet. The streets turn into ramps as the Bengali calendar undergoes 4-day Christmas extravaganza.
2: Because even Bebo stops counting calories when she holds a ‘puchka’, Mishti Doi and Roshogolla. It sure beats the hell out of cheesecakes.

3: Because Kolkata has always been the football capital of India.

4: Because the South City Mall doesn’t throw you out for hanging out, even those without a wallet.
